Land Art continued
Week 2: This week we moved on from 2D exploring to 3D building. Unfortunately the rather persistent rain meant we moved inside, but we used this to our advantage and looked at some examples of installation art, as well as the idea bring the outside world into an interior space. There were plenty of materials available for everyone to play with – stones and pebbles, shells, twigs, leaves as well as cottons, wools and some sewing needles. The little artists were encouraged to play as they would with Lego or building blocks to use their imagination to build up or out, down or across. I demonstrated simple binding and sewing techniques. Again everyone was given the chance to record their results with a digital camera.
